MTV will be rapping old-school again next month for one night only. reports the network is planning to bring back the hip-hop show “Yo! MTV Raps!” for a one-off episode dubbed “Yo! MTV Raps Classic Cuts.”

The 30-minute retrospective is scheduled to air December 4th on MTV2 after the first-ever “Sucker Free Awards,” which start at 11:00 p.m. Eastern.

It will feature former hosts Fab 5 Freddy, Ed Lover and Dr. Dre, as well as the artists behind three hip-hop classics — A Tribe Called Quest’s “Scenario,” Geto Boys’ “My Mind’s Playing Tricks on Me,” and Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day.”

Some of today’s most popular emcees will also be taking part, including Wiz Khalifa, DJ Khaled, Questlove, Mac Miller, Common, Fat Joe and more.
Ed Lover calls it a “great moment to be reconnected with ‘Yo!,'” which originally aired from 1988 to 1995. He adds that looking back at the classic songs originally featured on the show makes it “clear that hip-hop would inevitably transcend distance and generations.”

Despite recent denials from both of their camps, sources say Sean “Diddy” Combs and Cameron Diaz may be hooking up.

One source tells “Us” magazine that Diddy has been Cameron’s on-again-off-again fling ever since he pursued her during Oscars week in 2008.

Another insider adds that the actress will “booty call” Diddy whenever she’s single.

The couple was reportedly seen with their hands all over each other at a New York restaurant last month, while just last week they were reportedly spotted making out during lunch in Beverly Hills.

There is one catch, however. Diddy is said to still be dating his model girlfriend Cassie. A friend of the rap mogul’s tells “Us” that Diddy is “single whenever there’s a better offer on the table.”

What ever the case is I think they would make a great couple what yall thinking?

Not sure on when the the album will debut but I’m interested in seeing what Amber has to say. READ MORE
